syed zaidEngineering student Syed was delighted to pick up his GCSE results and find that he had achieved a grade B for English. This was his third attempt as he had taken the exam twice before and achieved a D grade previously.

Syed is studying for a Level 3 qualification in Electronics but he needed to improve his English and get a better grade so he can go on to university.

He said: “I’m delighted to have improved my grade by two marks since I last took the exam. Since coming to college, I have got on better because the teaching style is different and I have found the atmosphere open and friendly so learning is fun. My teacher also helped by running extra sessions in the library during half term so I felt very well prepared.”

Syed has set his sights on gaining a degree at The University of Bristol and will then consider a range of engineering opportunities.
